The boys and the girls of the 5th grade used their new iPads to create digital stories explaining the books they read over the summer. Using the SonicPics application, each student used a variety of photos, pictures, audio and text to discuss the main characters and themes in their novels. The digital stories were shared with all four of the 5th grade classes during coed time. “A new and fun way to spark interest in reading!” noted Lynn Patterson, 5th grade teacher.
